I’m looking to get some suggestions for info to include in my programs.
Aside from the wedding party list and a dedication and thank you section what did you include?
Did anyone use any poetry or quotes in your programs that i could borrow?

i included the two bible verses that my readers will read b/c people will not bring bibles. I also included an explanation of my wedding coins ceremony since most of FI’s family will have no clue.

I’m having a Catholic nuptial mass, so my programs will have the readings, songs, and some explanations of special cultural elements we’re including in the mass. (We’re doing arras coins too as a nod to my FI’s Mexican heritage.)
You could also fill out your programs with an engagement photo, directions to the reception if it’s offsite, or some random fun-facts about how you two met, etc.
Here are some love poems I found…

I’m in the works with this too- but here’s what I am thinking.
Our names, wedding date, bridal party names and their relation to us, the order of the ceremony in laymens terms (we’re probably skipping the “wedding devotional” and “invocation” stuff- I don’t know if thats even in our ceremony, but that stuff is confusing), our readings, soloists names, info that “reception immediatly following the ceremony at blah blah blah”, and a thank you blurb with shout outs to people.

Ours have the order of events with names of songs and readings; the bridal party, parents, and officiants info; info about the reception and directions. I’ve also included a little blurb about those that have passed away and cannot be with us and a list of all of them.

I was literally about to post this same thing! I’m interested in seeing what everyone says.
For those doing a dedication page – how did you word it?
Post # 9
Ohhh that’s a good question too!! You mean dedications for deceased family/friends?

Yes, @Nlmiele – that is what I mean – not sure what to call it, but I’m curious how people are wording that, as well as thank yous to special people.

I just found this blurb somewhere: “Possible headings include “We Remember” and “In Memory Of.” Instead of a header, you can also write a sentence or two, such as “We remember those who are no longer with us.” This sentence will then be followed by the names of your deceased relatives.”
But that short sentence then listing a bunch of names seems not good enough, you know? I want to say– something like, even on this _____ (insert adjective) day, we wish to rememebr those who are no longer with us” and then something else too, but I can’t think of anything!

Well I found a few options!

We did “In Memory…” and wrote:
We’d like to take the time to
recognize special family members
who are no longer with us. We miss
you dearly and hope that you are
watching graciously from above.
Then listed their names (my FI’s grandparents)

Page 1: Cover, names, date, church, etc.
Page 2: Parents, grandparents, bridesmaids & groomsmen
Page 3 & 4: The ceremony, including music, readings & readers
Page 5: A pretty saying about deceased relatives that couldn’t be there, and a thank you for everyone who attended.
I made it into a fan program!

@Ella1978-This is what I had in mind too. Can you post a pic of how yours turned out? I’m having a hard time figuring out the multi-page fan. Thanks!
